Goan Pork Vindaloo Recipe

Goan Pork Vindaloo Recipe

  Blow your head off hot and cooked from scratch using high quality natural ingredients, the Goan Pork Vindaloo curry requires very minimal tweaks in order to fit a paleo kitchen.     Hi all, Tanja has asked that I start putting together and posting a few of the recipes on dishes we feature on Paleo Australia. We both love spicy food and the choice to follow a Paleo diet wasn’t one that I had an issue turning our kitchen toward. Before I get going I’d just like to state that this is a life choice and just as I choose to embrace this diet I also choose to use certain ingredients that would probably ruled out by the strictest advocates among us. In this case the dish is Goan Pork Vindaloo and while all the ingredients are natural Vindaloos tend to involve a small amount of vinegar. I won’t deny my kitchen this smallest of indiscretions so please take it with the few grains of salt I’ll also put in this dish! Anyway enough rambling this is how it’s done: I like to lay the ingredients out 0n a plate before we start messing with things so you get a clear idea of what you’re dealing with. It also gives you an opportunity to gauge the balance of one ingredient over another. In this case we have approximately:   Ingredients: Paste 20 dried chillies 10 cloves of garlic 4cm piece of ginger 2 teaspoons of tamarind concentrate (paste) 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar Body 1 Kg of diced boneless pork shoulder (cut into 2cm cubes) 3 onions (medium-sized)...

Recipe for Paleo ‘Sandwiches’

I’m sure many of you paleo people out there have encountered the same thing: when discussing food, the first reaction from everyone is ‘But what about bread? I don’t know what I’d do without bread…‘ or ‘What do you have for lunch if you can’t have sandwiches?‘ Well, who needs bread when you can have paleo ‘sandwiches’? Here’s how: just wrap a slice of cold meat around all the goodies you’d normally stuff in a sandwich, and then wrap the package in a lettuce leaf or two and voila! Not only is this ridiculously delicious, it’s so guilt free and healthy that you can eat as many as you like! Recipe: Ingredients: lettuce leafs, preferably large ones thin slices of cut meat, preferably long ones avocado tomato cucumber red onion salt & pepper to season   Instructions: Prepare ingredients by washing and drying lettuce, tomato and cucumber well & slicing tomato, cucumber and red onion thinly. Lay a slice of chosen cold meat on a cutting board. Smear avocado in a line along the short end of the meat (as if you were filling a fajita or sushi). Lay all fillings evenly on the avocado and season with salt and pepper. Roll the slice of meat neatly around the fillings, and wrap a lettuce leaf around the fillings roll. Serve with your favourite paleo sides, for example raw carrot batons and sliced apple like in the picture.  ...
Recipe for paleo Beef Burgers

Recipe for paleo Beef Burgers

Personally, the non-paleo food I miss most is a good Aussie burger. However, going paleo doesn’t mean you have to give up burgers; prepare your own delicious burger patties and serve them as ‘Burger in a Bowl‘! Recipe: Ingredients: I’ve created two different versions of these patties, based on whether you like your food spicy or mild. Naturally, I recommend the tasty version…   Tasty version: 1 kg of grass-fed beef mince 1 large onion, minced few gloves of garlic, minced 1/4 cup almond meal 2 eggs 1tbsp sweet paprika 1tsp cayenne pepper salt & pepper to taste Safe version: 1 kg of grass-fed beef mince 1 large onion, minced 1 glove of garlic, minced 1/4 cup almond meal 2 eggs 1/2 tbsp sweet paprika salt & pepper to taste   Instructions: Preheat oven to 150c. Cook onion and garlic in a pan until soft. Mix all ingredients – including onion and garlic – in a bowl. Form into inch thick patties. I used two egg rings stacked on top of each other to get all patties the same size and shape. Cook on a pan until brown on both sides. Transfer into the oven and cook for further 25 minutes.   Adapted from Nom Nom Paleo....
